Hi All ~ I am a 27 year old female and looking for a knowledgeable Lyme Doctor in California ~I am in Santa Barbara but willing to travel to Los Angeles and farther to find the best.
I have been suffering from Lyme like symptoms since 2011 that come and go for months at a time then disappear . Extreme fatigue, malaise, foggy head, memory loss and have ruled out other diseases via blood work, thyroid, MRI's, anti-depressants & tried Eastern medicine.
It is time to see a lyme expert for a proper diagnosis, I am so grateful for any information as it is a quite frustrating disease that has impacted my quality of life for 3 years now.

Unfortunately, current standard treatment for lyme is inadequate (it comes back). You need a practitioner whose protocol reflects those of The International Lyme and Associated Disease Society (ILADS).
ILADS practitioners are cutting edge when it comes to lyme. Unfortunately, everyone else (including infections disease docs) follow substandard and antiquated guidelines. You can go to www.lymedieaseassociation.org and they will email you some names. Be sure to look for an ILADS practitioner.
